Best Svend Danish Modern Salt and Pepper Mill Set, 6.9”h

Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Online Specialty Food Store"

If not now, Svend?

Our beautiful Danish Modern mills were inspired by celebrated Danish artist, Svend Hammershoi. In case you were catching z’s in art history class, Svend made his mark as a Danish ceramist in the early 1900s. One of Svend’s favorite details was the ceramic groove. (But of course, you knew that!)

Our Best Svend Mill Set features cast, ridged ceramic tops fitted onto well-honed wooden bases of lightly finished oak. The set includes one Svend with a White Ceramic Top and one with a Slate Gray Ceramic Top.

Like all of our mills, they’re built with top-of-the-line ceramic CrushGrind mechanisms. (The grinder part.) We won’t sell anything else. Easily tune the grind from fine to coarse with the adjustable dial. The mills grind salt, pepper and spices too. Only the color of the ceramic tops are different.

To load, simply hold the bottom of the mill with one hand and pull the ceramic top straight up and off.

The White Svend Mill and Slate Gray Svend Mill are also sold individually. We also offer a Svend Mills and Fills Gift Box with a set of mills plus our signature salt and pepper.

Our Svend mills are casual, yet elegant. They’ll look equally good on your dining table as they do on your kitchen table.

What’s more, they come nicely boxed for gift giving.

Just say Svend!

  • 6.9"h x 2.5"dia. at base

To clean, use a damp cloth for ceramic top. The ceramic top is not dishwasher safe.

The oak portion of the mill has been oiled; it may be re-oiled with olive oil as necessary.

Grind coarse salt to help clean out oils from spices. For a more thorough cleaning, unscrew gray dial on bottom, remove the ceramic cone and soak in hot water. Make sure the cone is completely dry (24 hours) prior to reattaching to mill.

Do not substitute other peppercorn or salt brands in place of Reluctant because you know I’ll find out. Do not pass go.

Great Mills & Superior Salt/Pepper

Sent the Svend Mills & Fills to my parents just because. I thought Mom might get a kick out of the seasonings for sure, and the mills would bring a touch of glamor to the gift. I was right. She's wild about the pepper and loves the uniqueness of the Icelandic salt. Thanks, RT, for making the rare and wonderful so accessible!

Love the Svend Mills and Fills Set

The mills are beautifully designed. And holding them and using them is a pleasure. I just remodeled my kitchen and they look amazing on my table in the new space. Big fan!

beautiful to look at

We bought the salt and pepper mill set after our previous ones (not the same brand!) bit the dust and the mechanisms just weren't grinding anything anymore. These do what they are supposed to do!! Grind salt and pepper to the specific size you want and easily!! They are so nice to look at and they fit in your hands beautifully!

Danish modern salt mill

This is by far my favorite mill. I have tried so many. I use for both course salt and black pepper.
Wonderful experience, my order arrived well packed and promptly. Definitely would buy again!

Svend salt and pepper grinders

Love these so far. Used WMBounds grinders for years and they were good, but these CrushGrind mechanisms work precisely for the size grind you need. These have been awesome to use so far!
